It's not going to happen. She is serious. I mean, really, who runs for President after a only a couple of years as a Senator?
 
2014-04-20 04:08:39 PM  
She is probably the single greatest hope of changing wall street, and I had high hopes when she became a senator. Yet all I've seen her do is give out a few tongue lashings. I don't think she has the backbone Clinton does.

Tongue lashings? Go on...

I watched that interview. That was the first time I was actually convinced about a politician saying no about running for President.

Oddly enough, that's exactly what experts they interviewed on CBS Sunday Morning said about Pope Francis.

VP it is, then. Which is ok, because we'll have her for 16 years that way.

I'm pretty sure she hasn't introduced anything that got voted on yet. She's put pressure on the SEC, but there's no teeth in pressure. Granted, not to many congresscritters introduce anything they think will not pass, except the obamacare lunatics in the house.
 
2014-04-20 04:33:50 PM  
House of Cards taught me that the new "I am running for President" is not denial of it but rather a "reach across the aisle" moment.

Did Warren "reached across the aisle" yet?

it's got to be a kick for folks to ask you about being president. so good for her.

if obama had nominated her to head CFPB like so many of us wanted she would be stuck in obscurity. so good for her.
 
2014-04-20 04:59:48 PM  
I don't see this as a typtical non-denial, denial.  she seems rather emphatic that she has no desire to run for president and thank goodness for that.  We really need her fire in the senate.
 
2014-04-20 05:29:19 PM  
So, liberals want to force moderate democrats to vote for whoever the GOP runs or make them go to the libertarian ticket which will do the same thing?

Ambivalence: I don't see this as a typtical non-denial, denial.  she seems rather emphatic that she has no desire to run for president and thank goodness for that.  We really need her fire in the senate.


Agree.  Trying not to be too cynical, but she really seems interested in changing politics/America/ government as opposed to being the president (Clinton, Paul, Cruz) .  I've never heard her say anything about foreign policy, although I'm sure she has, but she is a populist, speaking for the average person and she knows how she can best serve America.  Plus she already has her grandchildren and knows the value of family.  Take note GOP with all of your rhetoric on family values.

That's precisely the best kind of president you can have, IMO.

/and exactly the president the US will never again get, sadly.

PreMortem:  Yet all I've seen her do is give out a few tongue lashings. I don't think she has the backbone Clinton does.

She's a woman. She's emotional. That's not a bad thing but I don't get her appeal.

Hobodeluxe:

Look at Obama. He was against Obamacare before he was for it. He was against the NSA before he was for it. Look at Obama's senate voting record---it's a horrible prediction of what he turned out to be as President.

She can't run for president. The rest of the country is just getting used to Massachusetts' senior senator not being the negligent drunken Fredo of the Kennedy family or a pompous upper-class twit who married a dead colleague's fortune.

We didn't really know who Obama was before the campaign, so we had to take his word on it. We have a pretty good idea who Warren is... or at least we've heard of her and she's taken concrete positions on things outside a political campaign.

See, here's the thing: No matter how many politicians say they're gonna work to make things different, make change/hope/etc., the sad fact is they're working uphill; if it were a real rather than metaphorical hill it'd be like trying to climb up an 80-degree mountain three miles high.  The thread a week or so ago about how retardedly polar we've become politically as a country pretty much sums it up.  No one wants to compromise anymore, they want it THEIR WAY because there's no possible way the other side could ever be right.

Until you get about 30% of Congress to be even moderate, let alone truly unbiased or independent, we're not getting out of this mess.

Bigdogdaddy: So, liberals want to force moderate democrats to vote for whoever the GOP runs or make them go to the libertarian ticket which will do the same thing?


I'm not sure what makes you think moderate Democrats would choose either of those options over Warren. Voters tend to favor liberal policies and politicians tend to overestimate how conservative voters are, by a wide margin.

Really it's the dumbest charge one can make against Warren. She had heard family stories about Indian ancestry, and identified with those supposed roots as a youth. As an adult, no documented evidence could be found to confirm the family lore.

Who cares?

Maybe because she's insisted on it as an adult as well.  She knows full well she's full on cracker yet continued as an adult to play off a fake heritage.  It's pretty sad, but at the same time perfect for political mockery.

Well, you certainly haven't gotten over your loss of cheap attack lines yet. Maybe you can try the "1/64 Native American" line - it sure worked well against Warren in the campaign.

It's also the only criticism the right has about her, which shows more about how lacking the criticism of Warren really is.

Just because she has George Washington's hair style doesn't mean she's qualified to be President.

Yes and no.  We can't just stop being American, we can't (legally) stop paying taxes in one form or another, but people can stop being Catholic or giving money to their local parishes.  It's much more possible to fix the Church than it is with the US Government.

img.fark.net

The right also believed that a guy born in Connecticut with a congressman father from a blue-blood East Coast political dynasty, and who went to private schools and Yale as a legacy and then Harvard, and who's oddly the only person in his family with a Southern accent which is in no way an affectation, is a gen-u-wine Texas good 'ol boy ordinary feller and not at all a poseur pandering to the GOP base.

They also believe Larry the Cable Guy installed cable before becoming a comedian.

I hope she does run.

I don't \want to hear any crap about how she is "needed" in the Senate.

She is needed to stop a Hillary Clinton disaster of a Presidency.
